LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Glancy Binkow & Goldberg LLP announces that it is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of KBW Inc. (“KBW” or the “Company”) (NYSE: KBW) related to the proposed acquisition of the Company by Stifel Financial Corp. The transaction is valued at approximately $575 million or $17.50 per share, a premium of only 7.4% over its November 2, 2012 closing price.
This investigation concerns whether the Board of Directors of KBW breached their fiduciary duties to stockholders by failing to adequately shop the Company before agreeing to enter into the proposed transaction, and whether the Company has disclosed all material information to shareholders about the transaction. The Company has seen substantial recent growth. Its share price has skyrocketed from $14.89 on May 18, 2012 to $17.90 on September 14, 2012. Further, at least one analyst has set a target price for the Company’s stock at $22.00.
